This review is from: ACP J4859C-AO ProCurve Gigabit LX-LC Mini GBIC 1x 1000BLX SFP F/HP
Pros: Same performance as OEM without the big $$
Other Thoughts: My only problem was that I completed my order for quantity 5 and Newegg revised the order down to quantity 2. This totally hosed me since I was running new fiber across my campus and you can't do that without enough modules. I think more and more items on Newegg are drop shipped from the manufacturer so you're at the mercy of their inventory once you place an order
Also, it's worth mentioning that fiber modules are picky about talking to each other even if installed in the proper brand switch. This is a "C" model so it wouldn't communicate with some of my older "A" models.
This review is from: Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard RK-9000I with Cherry MX Blue Switch
Pros: Good solid mechanical keyboard. Cables are heavy duty
Cons: While the keyboard and the cord are very sturdy the usb connection on the keyboard is not. It's not likely to be a problem at a typical workstation where the keyboard isn't moved a lot. I put one of these in service in a warehouse situation where the keyboard had to be moved on top of and below a work bench. Before long it intermittently stopped working and progressively got worse to where I replaced it with a keyboard with a permanently attached cable. The cable fits in the connection very loosely and the keyboard only works if I manually press the cable in one direction of another.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: SSD speed.
Cons: See below.
Other Thoughts: I have 5-6 of these drives in personal and work systems for around a year. Recently they have randomly stopped working. "Missing Boot Device" etc. Rebooting several times will get the system working again but after a brief time it would lock up again and again with the boot device missing error.
If you have these issues you should flash your firmware. Mine were very old (0009). I have flashed 3 units and it has cured all my issues. The website has a 1 click tool that flashes any M4 drive.
